#Parity: Satya 'Women Shouldn't Ask for Pay Raises' Nidella earned $86 million last year

The India-born CEO of tech giant Microsoft Satya Nadella, who caused uproar earlier this month after saying that women should not ask for pay raises, received a pay package totalling $86 million in the last financial year.

The amount was revealed in a filing to America's Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday and includes $79.8 million stock options, a bonus of $3.6 million and a base salary of $919,000.

Nadella, 47, who took over from Steve Ballmer in February at the head of Microsoft, has been at the center of a controversy since his comments at a conference in Arizona.

At the conference, on women in computing, Nadella stunned the audience when he answered a question by saying that women, instead of asking for a raise, should just trust "that the system will actually give you the right raises as you go along."

He reportedly went on to contend that women who don't ask for pay raises have a "superpower" in the form of "good karma, that'll come back."

Nadella has since apologized several times.

On Monday he also confirmed that men and women are paid equally at his company, a claim that runs counter to some limited data made public by employees, but is unverifiable given that Microsoft does not release details of its pay structure.

"I checked that it is something that we are enforcing," Nadella told a conference in San Francisco. 

"We are in fact in good shape. Men and women get paid equally at Microsoft."

Nadella's latest comment is not backed up by numbers from job review website Glassdoor, which show that men tend to earn more doing a similar job than women at Microsoft, although the data is based on a very small sample size of employees who choose to give pay figures to Glassdoor.

A male Microsoft senior software development engineer makes about $137,000 per year, according to Glassdoor, compared with about $129,000 for women.

Only 29 percent of Microsoft's more than 100,000 employees are female, according to figures recently released by the company.

Data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that men earn 24 percent more, on average, than women in the tech sector.  The American Association of University Women found that women were paid 78 percent of what equally qualified men received across the board last year.
